    I love the beef broth but otherwise, waitresses are rude and poor environment for dining in. One pathetic small table MUST sit 6 pax and they tell you straight in the face!

    Beef noodle is just so-so, there are better ones around, price is expensive too. Worst is the way they treat customers, I can understand the typical hongkie rudeness but they are the worst I've seen.

    Honestly just another restaurant which tourist will go. For me, is good to try once but not worth to q for the food.

    Beef noodle is just so-so, owner and staff are rude, tried to ask one of their walk-in customer to takeaway instead of dine in because she didn't order enough food.

    Find the time and patience to queue. While in HK you can't miss a lunch at Kau Kee Restaurant. Thumbs up for food quality, time management and organisation. Carry noodles highly recommended

    The beef brisket noodle is like Vietnamese pho, but with heartier chunks of meat.

    It wasn't bad, aside from the fact that half the bowl was fat :) nonetheless the noodles were good 7/10

    Amazing broths!!! If you're here with at least 2 ppl, get one of each broth - regular and curry.

    The beef noodles are to die for. Meat is supersoft, noodles chewy, broth filling. The queue snakes round the block, even in the rain. Come at non mealtime hours to skip the Qs. Starts at 12.30pm.

    Had 4 (beef brisket noodles, 45¥) and 14 (same with curry, spicy, 47¥), both good but liked 14 more. Fast service, waited 25 min @ 13:30pm. Hong Kong experience! :D one bowl of curry is enough.

    This was such an interesting experience where you are seated with strangers in a packed table that you will definitely hear each other slurp. Loved the beef tendon curry with flat noodles.

    Curry beef noodles are absolutely amazing. Staff are assholes, but that's the true Hong Kong way. Be careful of discrepancies between the Chinese and English menus.

    Everyone talks about the curry but honestly the simple beef noodle is much better. The menu is confusing AF and when they bring the food they won't call it by the number. Ask someone to translate

    The curry noodle is the best. There's always a queue. On average a person spends 15 minutes in this restaurant, so it's quick. Expect to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. *Ps. No queue for take out.

    All time favourite for beef brisket! Have it with the thin egg noodles, instead of the white flat rice noodles.

    Really good beef noodle soup, highly recommend their curry e-noodle!! Keep in mind.. might be a 30 mins wait, below average service and sharing table with others.

    Nice beef noodles. Different. Clearer texture. Long queues and very cramped eating. Be careful too, floor is oily and slippery.

    Is it worth the wait? Yup! If super hungry order two bowls or split an extra one with a friend

    I passed by this place everyday because it's so close to my place. There's forever a queue of tourists. I walked in today around 10 when there's no line. I ordered curry beef noodle soup. So good!

    Overrated and therefore, overpriced for what it is. Beef is too chewy and flavourless. Soup is at best, on par with any old koay teow th'ng you'll find in Penang.
